As demand for hosted technology in the Australian enterprise increases, we are pleased to announce that we have teamed with ASX-listed Amcom to deliver our Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) to the Australian market (see press release here). Offering IT and Unified Communications-as-a-Service is a growing trend in the market as customers look to reduce capex and lower risk.
Cisco HCS allows customers to unify their communications enabling telephony, video-conferencing and instant messaging across multiple devices for the end user, as well as delivering enterprise-grade security via the cloud. Amcom will be delivering the service over its national data network.
The solution supports a shift towards a more mobile workforce and can be seamlessly integrated with a company’s own BYOD policy. Amcom’s customers will see immediate cost benefits as well as be able to deploy new technologies faster and add new services as required.
The agreement is effective immediately and services will be available to existing and new customers from around June 2013. Amcom is already in advanced discussions with a number of clients looking to take advantage of the advanced collaboration services based on Cisco HCS.
